    Castle mamba monster 2 esc

    anyone running one of these on the spartan?
    i've just blew up my castle hydra 240 after 2 mins of run so looking for something waterproof now

    i've taken the fan off the mamba and the heatsink is roughly 32mm x 32mm wide
    i've found a computer heatsink on ebay 30x30mm
    gonna thermal paste is on and see how it goes

    good idea or not ?

    How did you blow a hydra 240? I hope it wasn't the stock setup, because there must be something wrong there...

    long story short, was a bit too excited and didnt waterproof it / spray any waterproofing stuff in it
    2 mins in i torque rolled the boat at high speed and it sank

    it was running stupidly fast tho, haha
    also not really worth me sending back to castle as its $190 replacement but will cost about $40-$50 to get a tracked shipping service from aus to the usa.
    where as if i wanted a new hydra its only about $270-$280ish new....
